The Miami Dolphins are still yet to agree on a new deal with Reshad Jones - who says he wants to be the best safety in the league - despite them having completed several deals already during the offseason.
Failing to extend Jones is a risky move by the Dolphins as the player led in interceptions last season and was rated as the NFL's third-best safety by ProFootballFocus.
Jones is about to enter his fourth season and he hopes to be able to show that he is one of the best safeties in the league through his performances.
"I want to be recognized as one of the premiere safeties. I can only get better," Jones told the team's official website. "I got the ball rolling in the right direction and I just told myself in this league. I think last year I went out and showed that to the world and I just want to keep it going."
Jones had tried to prompt the Dolphins into contract negotiations in May when he skipped the opening day of their organised team activities.
But the team didn't respond and their is still no indication from the club that they will be trying to sign him back up, with only loose promises from manager Jeff Ireland to "eventually" work out a new deal.
After having spent over $200m this offseason, you would think securing one of the league's best safeties would be a high priority for the Miami Dolphins as they look to make a serious push in the division next year.
